Look at the exotics with that horsepower. Look at the Enzo. It's got more horsepower, less weight, faster gear changes, and better off the line traction. And it's not in the...

Considering that the Corvette has LONG been "a poor man's ferrari" that kicks the rich-man's ferrari's ass, I think it's quite fitting that corvette should continue to crib some of ferrari's style. ...

You don't get what I'm saying.

That's a porsche. Not a corvette. Of course it's going to be exorbitantly expensive to do anything with it, even if it's the bottom rung model. That's what makes...
